The economy’s technology sector spearheads significant work in research and development related to computers, software, artificial intelligence, and other aspects of information technology.  Anthropologists work in many tech firms, typically entering this industry with a Master’s degree.  Presenters introduce the audience to their jobs, how they landed those jobs, the aspects of their work that relate to their anthropological training, and the value of networking to find similar positions.

Coordinator: Jenessa Spears
